Pep Guardiola Reaction
“Tommy Doyle played well in position that isn’t his natural position, usually he is further forward. He played really good! Congratulations to him on his debut. “
@Carabao_Cup is a good competition. We are already at the quarter-finals so we’ll see the draw. “
“You cannot win four titles in one season when you don’t play games so seriously. For the players who didn’t play the last games it’s good for me to see the rhythm.”
